PANCREAZE should be taken with every meal and snack1

Effective dosing strategies will vary by patient. Your doctor will advise you on how to take PANCREAZE — this may be the entire dose at once or divided throughout your meal. Always take PANCREAZE exactly as recommended by your doctor. For some patients, splitting the dose over the course of a meal may be an optimal strategy for effective digestion.10

Taking or administering PANCREAZE correctly1

For children over 12 months and adults:

  • Take PANCREAZE with a meal or snack and plenty of fluid. If you eat a lot of meals or snacks in a day, be careful not to go over your total daily dose.
  • Do not crush or chew the capsules or their contents or hold the capsule or contents in your mouth. Crushing, chewing or holding the PANCREAZE capsules in your mouth may cause irritation in your mouth or change the way PANCREAZE works in your body.

For caregivers of infants (children up to 12 months):

  • Administer right before each feeding of formula or breast milk.
  • Do not mix directly with formula or breastmilk
  • Sprinkle on a small amount of acidic soft food with a pH of 4.5 or less (see below) or sprinkle the capsule contents directly into the infant’s mouth.

Unable to swallow the capsules?

If you or your child is unable to swallow the capsules, you can sprinkle the contents on soft acidic food (e.g., applesauce, orange juice, crushed blueberries).

Drink water or juice immediately after to ensure complete ingestion. Care should be taken to ensure no drug is retained in the mouth. Please note that the capsule shown is not actual size and does not represent the exact color.
